      Heart Forge Steam Session with Jason Kaasovic

      Join us for Heart Forge, an experience designed to center participants in healthy heart-mind connection while drawing on Aufguss style sauna practice.  Heart Forge is built from research into how the heart impacts performance, functions,  and influences our lived experience.  Unique to the session will be the combination of heat therapy (which triggers the thermo-regulatory system) while intentionally wiring the intelligence of the heart. Participants will be invited to engage in meditative techniques that bring the body into coherence: a state of physiological and emotional alignment associated with positive health benefits.  The session will be led by 612 member-owner, Jason Kaasovic, and incorporates his personal practice, insight and research into the topics. What to bring: - Good parking Karma! It's ski season and parking at the Trailhead can be difficult. If you can't find a spot in the Trailhead lot, you may need to park at the old Chalet and walk down to the trailhead. We appologize for the inconveneince but we promise that the warm-up will be worth the walk! - Bathing suit (required) - Water bottle - 2 Towels - one to sit on and one to use after your session. Your sitting towel should be long enough to place your feet on the towel as well. There are hooks in the hot room to hang your sitting towel between rounds.  - Flip flops  - Lock for lockers. (Locker room and showers available onsite.) SAUNA SOCIETY CODE The Sauna Society Code has been identified to ensure that all guests have an enjoyable sauna and can be immersed in the health benefits of the activity, and can be summarized as follows: At the 612 Sauna Society, our intention is to support a welcoming, respectful, and inclusive space to enjoy the health and community benefits of sauna. We are aware of ourselves, each other, and our surroundings to ensure a safe environment for all sauna guests. We are aware of our own health and safety, and we are also aware of the health of other guests. We and our guests believe that everyone is equally worthy of love, respect, and dignity. We believe that differences of race, age, culture, religion, politics, sexual orientation, gender, gender variance, body shapes and sizes, nationalities, (and beyond) are simply part of being human and all are welcome here. In short, we endeavour to treat each other as a family—one that loves and respects each other. Thank you for helping us create a safe and comfortable space for all.  SAUNA TIPS Please arrive hydrated so you can enjoy the full benefits of your time on the bench. Sauna promotes healthy blood flow by activation of the thermoregulatory system. Practicing full “rounds” will provide the full health benefits. A round consists of 10-20 mins in the hot room (your body will tell you when your time is up), followed by a cool-down period outside. Letting your body cool down between rounds by relaxing and cooling off at the rinse station will increase your circulation and provide the full physical and mental benefit of the experience. A typical sauna session consists of 3-4 rounds of this hot-cold treatment. Learn more about the health benefits of Sauna here. AND MORE - Alcohol is not permitted. - The Sauna will be staffed by a trained host. If you have further questions about Sauna, The Forge or the 612 Sauna Society, please ask a member of the Stoker Team, or email us at - See you on the bench!
